Little Plaid Jacket

Rebecca Dale Photography

Growing up, I had to wear a plaid uniform to school.  Because I had to wear plaid for so many years, I never had the desire to buy a cute plaid blazer, fun plaid shorts, or a chic plaid scarf…until now. Middle school was ages ago and I’m so ready to incorporate plaid into my wardrobe.  This Zara blazer is a new Fall staple.  It’s preppy, yet modern – and I love pairing it with an unexpected pop of color.

    This blazer reminds me of Blair Waldorf (Gossip Girl). Is that weird to say?

    I love this blazer! You styled it so well. It's such a nice plaid-just a little touch of preppy. These pictures are so pretty.

    Love it paired with the orange purse- It'd look great with leather skinnies or shift dress!

    It's so funny that you mentioned wearing a plaid uniform because I had to wear a kilt in high school that was pretty much identical to your blazer pattern! I felt the same way about plaid until a few years ago with the flannel shirt trend & then I started to incorporate it into my wardrobe again!

    That blazer + purse is amazing ! You have taken a bold colored bag & styled it

      Haha ;) It's easy to get tired of plaid when you had to wear it for so many years right?! It's fun to finally incorporate it back into the wardrobe!!

    We totally understand the aversion to plaid after school uniforms, but we love the trend now. It can be paired with girly pieces or tougher leather. It's so versatile now that we have a fashion sense!!
